Report: Soros-Funded App Helps People in U.S. Illegally Avoid ICE

A George Soros-funded group launched a smartphone app called “Notifica” to help people in the U.S. here illegally avoid federal immigration authorities, according to an investigation by Judicial Watch.

United We Dream, a group that defends undocumented immigrants, developed the app to alert people about the status of potential immmigration raids.

“Notifica sends an alert before you or someone you know is about to get detained by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement),” the description reads on the Apple app store. “The Notifica app empowers immigrants and their families with a help button that alerts key contacts if an encounter with law enforcement (Immigration and Custom Enforcement, police, etc.) is about to take place.”

According to Judicial Watch, United We Dream and its parent organization, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), make “big bucks” off donations from Soros’s Open Society Foundation (OSF):

Both the NILC and its offshoot, United We Dream, get big bucks from Soros’ Open Society Foundations (OSF). In fact, both nonprofits list OSF as a key financial backer. In the United States Soros groups have pushed a radical agenda that includes promoting an open border with Mexico and fighting immigration enforcement efforts.

Soros-sponsored groups have directly targeted law enforcement operations before, Judicial Watch notes. They write that Black Lives Matter, groups involved in the Ferguson riots, and anti-counterterrorism groups all received funds from the OSF.

But the debate surrounding apps like this will no doubt extend beyond the politics of Soros’s spending, to the ethics of developing such technology.

As anti-law enforcement groups begin to use their platforms to undermine law enforcement officials, do companies like Apple have an obligation to society to remove their content? The Notifica app already has 395 (mostly positive) ratings on the Apple store, indicating its popularity. If Apple refuses to remove the app, they may be complicit in helping people here illegally avoid the law.
